I'm sensing a pattern. Are all the good restaurants on Colfax?

There are some good restaurants on Colfax, one or two great ones, and a whole lot of crap ones.

In terms of concentrations of good restaurants in Denver, I'll take the Highlands neighborhood or the Governor's Park area of Capitol Hill.

I did a little exploring today. Saw a place on 17th near Marczyk Fine Foods called Steubens (or something like that) that I will definitely return to try. Looks like a good place for Sunday brunch.

I think Steubens is very overrated (for some reason most of my friends think it's great). The bar's good - I like the atmosphere and they make a good cocktail, but the food is just average. Avoid the brisket.

Brunch their is decent. Nothing outstanding, but they can cook an egg right.

For Sunday brunch I'd recommend Root Down (Highlands), Lola (Highlands) or Cafe Star (East Colfax).

Exactly, Shiraz serves Persian food. There's actually a ton of great places to eat along Arapahoe Rd tucked away in strip malls (Arapahoe Rd photo tour):

.

That's one cuisine I've always loved, and have been especially spoiled living in LA for the last year. I LOVE barbequed kabobs and that Persian rice where the bottom part of the pot gets burnt and cripsy. ...served with a grilled tomato.... mmmmm...
Where is Arapahoe Rd. in relation to Evans/Iliff? I've managed to find all the thoroughfares most frequently mentioned here, except that one.

Thanks for the tip. I go to brunch for breakfast food, so was unlikely to have the brisket, in any case.

Arapahoe road is a good 6 miles or so south of Evans/Iliff. The major E/W streets on either side of Arapahoe are Orchard and Dry Creek.

Thanks. I've been meaning to head south, but haven't yet.
